Yes the intro certainly has a good alfabeto list with variants - I'm
not sure how much these are Marini's or those of a jobbing guitarist's
brought in to add the alfabeto.
Here is what Alex Dean observes, on p 127 of his diss:
'This influence operates not only at the editorial level, in the choice of
alfabeto symbols, but also at the compositional level, in that these songs
tend to be composed in a style that is amenable to strummed guitar
accompaniment. It follows, therefore, that the adoption and adaptation of
alfabeto symbols in Italian canzonettas reflects an ongoing, mutual
influence between an orally transmitted performance practice and the
composition and performance of strophic chamber song with continuo notation.'
He further suggests that with a number of composers, including Marini, the
alfabeto harmony would be an integral element of the composition.
